reportedly referenced violence but the f.b.i. launched a full investigation. now one of the most decorated military leaders in our history has been removed as the head the c.i.a. essentially he has been silenced days before he was scheduled to testify before congressional investigators. even more concerning, all of this unfolded before the election but we, you, were not told about until president obama was declared victorious. speaking of the white house they are peddling the farfetched story that the president wasn't informed about the petraeus affair until after the election day. >> this investigation has been going on for months. how is it that the white house didn't have any idea of this until the day the election and congress a few days later? >> i would refer you to the f.b.i. they have, as i understand it, protocols in place when they notify the legislative executive branches of the investigations. it is simply a fact that the white house was not aware of the situation regarding general petraeus until wednesdaythe sitl allen, friday. >> sean: so the f.b.i. knew about the investigati
-mails that he exchanged with the tampa temptress, jill kelly. she started the fbi investigation of petraeus in the first place. why are the military generals acting so much like politicians? well, we'll talk about that and all kinds of other issues but first, we get the latest. today's current news update, lisa ferguson's got it out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. as bill mentioned this petraeus story seems to be getting more complex by the minute. we'll give you more information here because we are continuing to learn more about this whole scandal involving now former c.i.a. director david petraeus and his extramarital affair with the author of his biography paula broadwell. another american is now getting caught up in the whole thing and that is the top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. turns out the pentagon is now investigating him as well for sending inappropriate e-mails to jill kelly. now, if you remember from yesterday, kelly is the same woman who sparked this whol
. ♪ host: good morning, welcome to "washington journal." the fbi investigation that led to the resignation of general david petraeus has expanded to general john allen. the impact of all this on the intelligence community and national security will be part of several hearings on capitol hill later this week. lawmakers return to washington today amid a shake-up of the president obama national security team, facing the looming issue of the so-called fiscal cliff. that is where we want to begin today this morning. president obama will meet later on with labor leaders who are insisting that the president not compromise on cuts to medicare and social security. what is your take on this? avoiding this -- avoiding the fiscal cliff? host: remember, you can send us a clear message, post your comments on facebook, or send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. courtesy of the newseum, washington, front page of that newspaper and many of the newspapers this morning, including "the washington post," liberal groups prepare for an entitlement fight. this is what zachary goldfarb rights. -- writes. host: ther
. the general's affair was actually uncovered during an investigation by the fbi. the fbi's involvement has raised questions with at least one former cia operative. >> i'm not going to, but there are four or five cia directors that i know were carrying on extramarital affairs while they were director. the fbi was never brought in. the office of security was never brought in. it was ignored. it went away quietly. we'll never know about them. so this is absolutely extraordinary. i'm telling you it's more to do than with sex. there's something going on here which i can't explain and i think we're going to find out very soon. >> petraeus took over as cia chief after a long career in the army, most recently as the man leading operations in afghanistan. the cia will be run by michael morrell who has been deputy director since may of 2010. >> there are plenty of questions surrounding the timing of the resignation. joining me is suzanne kelly. good to have you back with us. why was the fbi involved? >> reporter: well, victor, a u.s. official tells cnn the fbi was investigating a tip that david petr
himself was informed by the petraeus affair by a veteran agent of the fbi. top officials had been briefed about the investigation, according to him, including the fbi director, robert meehler. here's what really happened. the decision was made to delay the resignation to avoid potential embarrass men to the president before the election. in short the president or somebody close to him decided to put politics first. and, quote. >> now, conveniently petraeus's decision to step down on friday will also prevent him from appearing before congressional investigators later this week. but that's not the only thing that americans were not told before they filled out their ballots last tuesday. on thursday, two days after the election, we were informed that iran had recently attempted to shoot down a u.s. drone that was flying in international airspace. that happened on november 1. in other words, you were not informed about an act of war perpetrated by a rogue regime that's hell bent on the destruction of israel. why? because politics takes precedence under administration and both post election su
. welcome to a brand-new hour inside america's news headquarters. >> harris: i'm heather childers. f.b.i. -- >>. >> heather:. they discovered it through the f.b.i. and on the woman may have had access to personal e-mail account but many are questioning the timing of this as general petraeus was gearing up to testify next week before house lawmakers concerning the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. molly henneberg is live in washington with the very latest on this story. >> molly: now that he stepped down, general david petraeus will not testify this up coming week at house and senate intelligence xheet committee hearings investigating the benghazi. some on capitol hill they do want to hear from him in the future. >> i hope we don't have to subpoena a four-star general and former c.i.a. director. i hope he would come voluntarily. if he won't, he will be subpoenaed. >> molly: petraeus who had been in charge of the c.i.a. since september 2011 has said the attack was in response to a protest over an anti-islam video. one g.o.p. congressman is asking questions about the timin
wants to have lunch in the obama white house. i mean, why not? >> and it happens. you write about an fbi investigation, and to attendant to that that paula broadwell almost became an fbi officer herself, right? >> i'm told that she actually applied, passed a polygraph and they were ready to offer her an appointment. >> she didn't take it because harvard called? >> i don't think it went too well at harvard. she could have been an agent. must have been surreal for her to be standing in her house with fbi agents searching her house and she was just a step away from becoming an agent. >> talk about fredrick humphries, the fbi agent who jill kelley contacted. what's his story? >> what's interesting is that, you know, this is the time where you're not liked in the bureau or the police department or whatever, this is when they start kicking, you know, when you're down already. and no one's kicking him. i mean they still speak pretty highly of him. he was in the terrorist task force himself. up in seattle. and he was the lead agent in the millennium bombing case. >> oh, yeah. >> did a great job.
about the cia director scandal until last week. especially because we are told that eric holder and fbi director robert mueller began looking into the affair last summer. we are told that mr. eric holder was told in september about it. then they spend weeks on an investigation that went so far as to open the cia director's e-mail, all without ever even mentioning it to the white house. joining me now is the former u.s. attorney general under george w. bush. there is an article in time magazine talking about you. about how you were the attorney general back in 2007. he wrote a memo that would have dissuaded or prohibited any contact between fbi justice and the white house when there is an ongoing criminal probe. you say that's nonsense. that's not what your mama said. >> that's correct. in fairness, "time" magazine, they got it right. but what the memo was meant to do and what it did was to stop contact in criminal investigation, ordinary investigation and restricted. it is permitted to have contact. megyn: so when there is an fbi investigation of this sort going on, saying mr. president
of national intelligence, the acting director of the cia, senior deputy at the fbi, senior undersecretary of the state department as well as the head of the national terrorism center. and the active director of the cia will tell members of congress that the annex did not call for military assistance to help them on the day of the attack in benghazi, jenna. jenna: there is so much happening cat reurpbgs the foc catherine, the focus today, what are you happening. >> reporter: fox news was told the focus breaks down into a handful of areas. what was the intelligence picture leading up to the benghazi attack. between june and september there were at least three attacks on benghazi on western or diplomatic interests. at what point did the u.s. intelligence community assessment show that benghazi was a terrorist attack, and how did that conflict with the obama administration's statement that it was a spontaneous demonstration in response to this anti-islam video. and also director petraeus, at what point did he understand whether he was the focus of an fbi investigation and whether this in anyw
member of the senate judiciary committee, chuck grassley n a letter to the attorney general and the fbi director is asking for a detailed briefing before the end of next week on the legal authorities obtained to monitor the former cia director's e-mail by the fbi as well as the legal analysis that allowed them to conclude that they did not need to notify congress, nor the white house of this ongoing investigation with national security implications, jon. jon: katherineer ridge in washington, thank you. jenna: now we turn to afghanistan where nearly 70,000 u.s. troops continue to fight today. afghan president hamid karzai is accusing the u.s. of violating an agreement on transferring detainees. this comes as leaders in kabul oppose offering immunity to american forces after that 2014 withdrawal deadline. this is a key sticking point in negotiations with the u.s., and we saw a similar debate emerge as we were withdrawing or drawing down in iraq. conor powell is live in kabul with more. >> reporter: well, jenna, this is just the latest in a long line of disputes between president karzai an

community there. including folks from the state department, the f.b.i. everybody there was asked do you know who made the changes? nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed talking points that was not there, was the white house. i don't know what they said yesterday. is exactly right or not. but what i do know is every member of the intelligence community says references to al-qaeda were removed by somebody. they don't know who. references to attacks versus demonstrations were by somebody. >> chris: let me ask you a question, will your committee the senate intelligence committee call ambassador susan rice to ask her to testify? >> i don't know the answer to that question right now. senator feinstein andly talk about that. we have two more hearings scheduled where we have a list -- >> chris: do you think should be called? >> she will syste have to come n and testify at some point. closed or open hearing. we'll have an open hearing, too. but at some point she needs to come in and say what the white house directed her to say. >> chris: dianne feinstein, the democratic chair of senator chamblis
to the pentagon and the i.g. on the one hand and to the f.b.i. with regards to general petraeus. >> he's not -- big picture watching, he's not shaking his head saying, guys, we need a more credible, competent sense of leadership? >> he's not going to make grand pronouncements or decisions about things based on two situations, two individual cases. he's focused on the missions that the military is tasked with carrying out and the c.i.a. and the general intelligence community is tasked with carrying out and with enacting his overall agenda. which encompasses not just national security policy but obviously domestic polcy. -- policy. yes. >> jay, has the president spoken to general allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of, no. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort after follow-up, does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and his cabinet? >> i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the -- a
. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the f.b.i. has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i've said before. yen petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the c.i.a. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of the c.i.a. with respect to this personal matter he's now dealing with with his family and with his wife. it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country an extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. >> what about vote
community there, including folks from the state department, the fbi, everybody there was asked, do you know who made these changes and nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the white house. so, you know, i don't know whether -- what they said yesterday is exactly right or not. but, what i do know is that every member of the intelligence community says that references to al qaeda were removed by somebody, and they don't know who and references to attacks versus demonstrations, were... >> chris: let me ask you a question. will your committee, the senate intelligence committee, call ambassador susan rice to ask her to testify? >> i don't know the answer to that question right now, senator feinstein and i will talk about that. two more hearings are scheduled -- >> should she be called. >> she'll have to come in and testify at some point. whether it is in a closed hearing or an open hearing. we're going to have an open hearing, too. but at some point she needs to come in and say what the president or the white house directed her to say. >> chris: se

that prompted the fbi to investigate. also we know from that source that the investigation led to the discovery of e-mails between broadwell and petraeus that indicated the affair. more details are coming out about the timeline of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. the fbi informed the director of national intelligence james clapper about the investigation on tuesday night, election night. just as some polls were beginning to close. that director clapper as a friend, colleague, fellow officer and admirer urged petraeus to step down from his position. we know as well from that intelligence source that director clapper informed the white house about the investigation on wednesday and then on thursday the director and -- the questions now, of course, will focus on this second woman. who was she? what was the nature of her relationship with petraeus, and what more do officials know about the nature of those emails between broadwell and this other woman? maybe some of those questions will be answered as the oversight committees now begin to pose
the video. we know what a mob looks like in the mideast. i am increasingly convinced the fbi interviewed the survivors in ramstein, germany, the day after and convinced that the best and current intelligence assessment on 16, september went against the video. the video was a political smoke screen. the actual facts were this was a coordinated preplanned terrorist attack. when the president said on "letterman" we think the video caused this. when he said at the u.n. we won't let a hateful video turn the mideast into a bad spot they're not relying on the best -- >> but all the evidence is that ambassador rice was using the information given to her by the intelligence community. >> i don't -- i don't believe that. i will -- here's what i want to know. have the intelligence community, not the deputies, the people on the ground put in one pile all the evidence of a preplanned coordinated terrorist attack with al qaeda militia and one pot and put in the other pot the evidence that this was a spontaneous mob created by a hateful video. i've seen no evidence. what did the fbi get from the surviv
